When life changes, a strong woman will survive… escape into a world of love, mystery and adventure!
My fictitious Yorkshire bay and market towns are based on real places within the North Yorkshire national park; from its dramatic coastline to the wild moors and beyond.
Love is a timeless essential of life. Throughout history, love in all its forms is a constant: be it passionate, caring, needy, manipulative, possessive or one that is strong enough to cross barriers of culture or faith. When two souls meet in a situation which takes them out of their normal social strata or into a shared danger, a relationship forms as the adventure unfolds.
The historical romances are based in the early nineteenth century, set against dramatic social change at a time of war with France. Smuggling, espionage, press-gangs all add to the drama that the hero and heroine can face. Created to be entertaining reads that pass away a few hours lost to the thrill of an adventure.
My created world features the rugged headland of Stangcliff, (Huntcliffe, Saltburn), the Coble Inn on the bay of Ebton and Gorebeck, the fictitious market town on the edge of the moors. The latter is a major crossroads for travellers going north to Newcastle, west to Harrogate, east to Whitby, and or south to York.
“A fine Regency epic set during a time when women were expected to be complaisant and humble towards their masters and ‘betters’; but Lydia Fletcher is not and will fight for what she believes in – honesty and trust.” Bestselling, award winning saga writer, Val Wood
